TBF 019 :: Big Farmers and Small Farmers, Updates, and a Hard Lesson Learned

To say that it has been a little crazy on the farm lately would be a bit of an understatement. I have raked hay, mowed hay, staked hay, feed animals, watered animals, tried to make animals comfortable in the heat, attended the county fair, and broke lots of things! All of that led to this weeks episode becoming part of next weeks episode ... if that makes any sense! Nevertheless I did sit down (over the course of a few days) to share some updates from the farm, my hard lesson learned for the week, and a few thoughts on "big farmers" and "little farmers". There used to be a time in my farming journey when I may have titled this section "big farmers" vs. "little farmers", but I think there is so much that can be learned and shared between all farmers, no matter their farming methods!

If you have an input on the topic be sure to leave a comment below or send us an e-mail.

This weeks "Hard Lesson Learned" is all about doing what you think you need to do even when you don't really think that you need to do it. As usual I had to learn the hard way that it is important to go with your gut sometimes ... even if you are tired and hungry!
